The goal of this basketball play is to get a deep catch for the post player, and the way that this is going to happen is to have the post player first set a good down screen. After they set the down screen the defense is going to relax because they think they have successfully defended the pin down action. However, the post player is going to duck in hard and try to get as deep of a catch as they can. From here it must either be a foul or finish for the post player.
A big part of this basketball play is timing because if the post player ducks in too early then the defense will be able to recover before the ball is entered. The post player needs to be patient and duck in right before they get the ball.
